Will the Windows Phone version of Instagram, TempleRun 2 and others be launched with Nokia Lumia 928?
Around the water cooler these days, a buzz is slowly getting louder and louder about the possibilities of the launch of the Nokia Lumia 928. Over the weekend, we showed you a series of third party accessories already available for purchase which tells us that a launch of the phone is probably very soon.

And now there is even more speculation that a number of Windows Phone apps and games, some of which are eagerly awaited, will be announced at the same time the Nokia Lumia 928 launches. We're talking about extremely popular apps like Instagram, which has already been tipped for a May launch on the platform. If Instagram does half as well on Windows Phone as it did when it debuted on Android, Mark Zuckerberg is going to be very pleased.

Some of the games mentioned as coming to the Windows Phone Store include TempleRun 2 and Jetpack Joyride. Microsoft continues to try to play catch-up to the App Store and Google Play Store when it comes to apps and games.

Instagram has been released already, but not the official app, it is Nokia's #2instawithlove....only available in Nokia's market I think...check it out

#2instawithlove is neither Instagram, nor an alternative for it, as opposed to Instagraph on Windows Phone. It is simply an app by Nokia to request Instagram developers to bring the app to the platform. The app is powered by users, and has garnered enough buzz already for Instagram to make a move, which is why the official Instagram app is launching in May, or along with the Nokia Lumia 928.

Has anyone noticed the increase of trolling comments about Nokia in the past couple months? Even trolling comments are being said on articles that have nothing to do with Nokia. I wonder if these screen names are getting paid to type these comments.

There is a possibility they are being paid to do so, and if it is true, it simply means there are companies paying attention to Nokia and worried about their revival and teh resulting competition. Nokia may never be top again because Samsung makes pretty much any electronic stuff you could think of, but they can still be a string contender. Look at the bright side.

I've seen the same trend with Apple and Samsung. It is just showing that Nokia is starting to get noticed again. Agree with you that it is annoying sometimes. However, in the case of this article, mentioning Nokia is relevant. They played an active part in getting Instagram on board with WP8.

I see samsung trolls wanting a fight, if it's the case... all in. Either this site moderators take this situation seriously banning all trolls, or I'll become one and join the party. By the way... Ladysmall wellcome to the trolling comunity.
